In this video, I show you the steps to make yourself a simple bow out of pvc.
You do not need any heat or reshaping of the pvc to do this, just some simple cutting and sawing is needed.

Hickory wood is the best for a bow. You can bend it double without breaking.

The Indians used hickory.

What kind of knot is that for the paracord???

Just a simple doubleknot made real tight. It can sometimes loose up and I have to retighten.

how long does it take to make roughly for a first timer?

If you are good with your hands, less than an hour if you have everything in the video.

Thanks, I might try pipe insulation instead of a paperclip

Why do you have to cut the smaller pieces
